Akai Professional Fire & FL Studio Fruity Fire Edition - £115 @ Amazon

14
Posted 28th Feb
Reduced from £169 to £115. Seems like a decent deal.

Controller on it's own is £99, here.

A well made Akai controller with a bundled copy of FL Studio (Fruity Fire Edition), which is £76 on it's own.

The Fruity Fire Edition is essentially the Fruity Edition, but uses the Akai Fire as a USB dongle.

Make sure to check the Fruity version is the version that suits you, as it has less features than the Producer or Signature editions. I was seriously tempted, but want the Signature Edition.

Damn this is so tempting - just wish I had some more time (have 11 year old twins) and some talent. 😁
Maann I am sooo old

No and yes, in that order.

It's a hardware controller for controlling PC (And Mac I think) software. You get the software with it, which is quite powerful, yet fairly easy to learn, but you do need a computer to use it.

Okay thanks, I will cancel my order, as I don't have a laptop anymore


Looks pretty cool - Whats FL Fruity Fire edition like ? Ive got a midi keyboard and it came with a basic ableton that lets me have about 8 channels on it, would this FL be better ??

Personally I think it's great. Powerful, while not being off-putting to new users. Good enough for beginners, also good enough to create production quality tracks with.

You can have many more than 8 channels.

You can download a full-featured demo (minus the load or save project, I forget which) here. Which will let you mess around with all the features of the Signature Edition (the top version). The Fruity Fire Edition (the same as the Fruity Edition, it just uses the Akai as a security dongle) in this is the basic starting package and has most of the core features, minus a lot of the plugins (some you may want, others you may not, there is a comparison chart in the main post) And no sound sample support (although there are ways around that).

Def worth trying before you buy if you are unsure.

Must resist..... Must resist. 😁

I would be wary of the used one, it may not come with FL Studio, as you have to register it to get the software. AFAIK it is not transferable.

OK - thanks for making me firmer on not buying. 😁
